City Council Takes Action on Several Park Improvements

Disc Golf Course in the Making at Court Square Park

The Changing Seasons The top photo was taken Friday morning following a seven-inch snowfall in Belle Plaine. Two days later, Sunday afternoon, most of the snow was melted thanks to temperatures in the 60s. (Above) Deb Connolly and Kassie Hartmann (left) cleared the heavy, wet snow from the end of Connolly’s driveway on the 700 block of East Court Street. (Below) Angie Hoff helped her daughter, Noelle, avoid the puddle at the bottom of the slide in Heritage Park. The family, which includes (not pictured) her sons, Erik and Eli, and husband, Alex, enjoyed an afternoon visit to the park.

by Dan Ruud The Belle Plaine City Council Monday night unanimously accepted a donation of $11,000 from the Belle Plaine Baseball Association to help pay for the cost of the new scoreboard to be installed at Tiger Park baseball field. Belle Plaine Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey reported that “we will be removing the old scoreboard and replacing it with the new one this week.” On Jan. 6, the council agreed for the city pay up to $30,000 of the $40,610 it will cost to replace the scoreboard. The Belle Plaine Baseball Association agreed to pay the difference as well as about $1,000 to offset the cost of installation. The city’s share of the cost is coming from its capital improvement plan. The new scoreboard will replace the existing 14-year-old scoreboard at Tiger Park. The old scoreboard has been hampered by aging wiring, outdated technology and inefficient bulbs. The intent of the project was to have that scoreboard replaced prior to the state amateur baseball tournament being hosted by Belle Plaine and Jordan late this summer. The new Daktronics scoreboard’s dimensions are approximately 18 1/2 feet high and 36 feet wide. Sponsor panels will also be included. Gerry Meyer of the Belle Plaine Baseball Association thanked the council for its assistance in the purchase of the scoreboard, and added that contributions have also been made by the State Bank of

Belle Plaine, CornerStone State Bank, Matt Saxe ChevroletBuick and the Belle Plaine School District. In other business Monday night, the council unanimously authorized the purchase of disc golf equipment for the installation of a six-hole course at Court Square Park, which is located adjacent to the Historical House property. During a parks tour in 2013, the Belle Plaine Park Board determined that a small course would fit nicely into the landscape of Court Square Park and recommended reserving funds for installation this year. Quotes for the equipment were obtained from Minnesota Wisconsin Playground (MWP) and Gotta Go Gotta Throw (GGGT), the latter of which submitted a quote of $2,415.70, which was $1,482.40 less than MWP. The park board recommended purchasing the equipment from GGGT and the public works department has indicated it will install the equipment. Staff reported that the park board has $6,000 reserved for the development of the disc golf course, and although the board does not anticipate using all of the remaining funds, some will likely be requested at a future meeting for signage. In another park improve-

ment endeavor, the council unanimously approved the plans and specifications for the remodeling of the restrooms facility at Union Square Park located adjacent to Tiger Park. Public Works Superintendent Al Fahey reported that the project, for which the architect has yet to provide a cost estimate for, will include automatic lights, vent fans and “high efficiency” lavatory fixtures. “The public works department will be removing all the fixtures and the concrete flooring (which will be replaced) to allow for a reduction in the overall cost of the project,” said Fahey, adding that the project is scheduled to be completed before Bar-B-Q Days and the state amateur baseball tournament. For the project to happen, the council will still need to approve the awarding of the low bid once it has been received. “I want to put the bids out as soon as possible so we know what the cost will be,” Fahey said. *Unanimously accepted the resignation of police administrative assistant Cheryl Bryce and authorized staff to advertise for candidates to fill the position. In her letter of resignation,

B.P. Youth Fair Saturday Morning

Belle Plaine Community Education is hosting its Spring Youth Fair Saturday (April 12, 9 a.m. to noon) at the juniorsenior high school. The event is an opportunity for parents to learn about after-school activities and local organizations. It will include interactive booths, fun demonstrations, a bouncy house, mu-

sical entertainment, silly hair and face painting. Attendees can also purchase swimming pool passes, register for swimming lessons plus register early – a $10 savings – for youth baseball, softball, and Tball. There will also be cake served celebrating ECFE’s 40th anniversary.

Enrollment Dip Causes Increase In Fast Actions by Firefighters Help Save B.P. Schools’ 2013-14 Budget Deficit Blakeley Grain Processing Facility

When the Belle Plaine School District assembled its budget for the 2013-14 school year, 132 kindergartners were expected. When only 114 kindergartners showed up for school, the shortfall meant less revenue than expected. Overall, the district expected 1,622 students – and the funding that comes with them – when it formulated its budget. With fewer students at Oak Crest along with the dearth of kindergartners, the revised 2013-14 budget reflects an enrollment of 1,586. The difference in state aid is just under $163,900. The lower-than-expected en-

rollment was part of the reason behind a larger-than-expected amount of red ink in the revised 2013-14 budget the school board OK’d March 31. The revenue the district expected but didn’t receive is just one of the reasons behind deficit spending in the revised budget the board recently approved. Salaries and benefits for employees cumulatively increased by $149,598. The district also equipped all its classroom teachers with iPads at a cost of $89,116. The revised general fund budget – the fund the district uses to pay most its operating ex-

Two Women Arrested Near Jordan After Long Chase Two women in their mid-20s are facing charges after leading police on a car chase that wound through the crowded interstate system in the Twin Cities metro Monday afternoon and ended on Highway 169 near Jordan. According to authorities, the chase began shortly after 2:30 p.m. in and alley in north Minneapolis after officers noticed a vehicle that was reported stolen. The driver sped away and ended up on Interstate 94, crashing into two vehicles and weaving in and out of traffic.

About a dozen state troopers pursued the driver, who sped onto Interstate 494, passing vehicles on the left and right shoulders. Authorities say the women threw drugs out of the vehicle during the pursuit. The chase eventually ended on Highway 169 near Jordan when the car broke down. According to the Minneapolis Police Department, the women arrested were identified as Diane Roberta Chosa and Collette Ann Hanson.

penses – increases from $14.35 million to $15.32 million. The deficit spending, which was anticipated, reduced the general fund reserves from approximately $2.65 million to $2.46 million. The overall budget, which includes food service, debt service and community service funds, includes income of $19.51 million. But the district planned to spend $19.62 million. General fund revenues of approximately $14.84 million was out-paced by $15.3 million in spending. The district’s food service fund and community service fund are also running deficits for the year.

Pro Roasting Solutions in Blakeley Township continues to function following a fire last Tuesday afternoon (April 1). But according to Belle Plaine Fire Chief Todd Otto, that may not be the case if wasn’t for the fast response of the first firefighters to arrive at the scene. “The initial engine crew knocked the fire down real quick. That’s what saved the whole building,” Otto said. Belle Plaine firefighters were called to the scene, the former Blakeley elevator site, at about 3 p.m. Otto said the fire started in a (grain/peanut) dryer and spread to the main building. No injuries were reported but the dryer was heavily damaged. Otto said there was moderate damage to the east portion of the building. Other fire departments that assisted at the scene included Jordan, Henderson, Le Sueur, New Prague, Norwood Young America and Carver. Pro Roasting Solutions employee David Dopp, who was touring the facility with an insurance inspector on Monday, said the plant is still operational and that everyone remains working. Dopp added that it could be weeks or longer before the roasting end of the business resumes. He said there is still no firm estimate on the cost of repairs and replacement equip-

ment, etc. Pro Roasting Solutions is a multi-service grain processing facility, servicing the pet food and livestock industries. It also performs grain cleaning, fumi-

gation and other services. Otto said this was not the first time his department has been called to the building. “We’ve been there several times (in recent years). Their dryers keep us busy,” he said.

Participants were a blur as they sprinted from station to station Thursday during the Girls ROC program after school. The program will conclude with a 5K run in Mankato later this month. Pictured above are Abbie Perry, Kelli Reitz, Hannah Woelfel, Lauren Miller, Elizabeth Sellnow and Kaylee Shackle.

School’s Weekly Program Aims to Help Oak Crest Girls ‘ROC’

A program aiming to help girls improve their self-esteem through fitness is off and running at Oak Crest Elementary School It’s called Girls ROC (Running at Oak Crest). Each Thursday afternoon since early-March, a group of girls at Oak Crest Elementary School – third through sixthgraders – meets after school between 3 and 4 p.m. School staff led by Principal Liann Hanson talks with the girls about ways to take control of their young lives through self-confidence and making good choices while the girls enjoy a healthy snack. Last Thursday, they spoke of what it meant to find and maintain “their voice.” Many of the girls spoke of expressing who they are as people and what they believe in. “Most of them really nailed it,” Hanson said. The idea behind the program is to remind girls they can be leaders. It aims to empower them to believe in themselves and overcome challenges. Girls ROC blends helping girls improve their confidence, self-esteem and decision-making and improved fitness. “No matter who you are, anyone can run or jump. Anyone, whether you’re tall or short, whatever,” Hanson said. When she initiated the idea in late-February, Hanson hoped for 20 girls, a group small enough that she could lead it without much assistance. After word of the program spread through the school, 20 quickly became 40, then 65 and 80. The day after the first meeting, 80 swelled to 90. The day after the first program in early-March, the last eight girls joined. The growing participation –

over 20 percent of the school’s enrollment -- pushed Hanson to recruit help from 11 of the school’s teachers and para-professionals. The Thursday sessions start with attendance and a healthy snack. Last Thursday (April 3), with a snowstorm rolling into town, the girls went through a series of stations designed to increase fitness and stamina. The stations had assigned exercises at each one. They were a switch from 1- or 2-mile runs after school. From chair steps in the media center to push-ups by a bank of lockers and jumping jacks in outside the art room, the girls were allowed to run from station to station. “This is one time you can run in the halls,” Hanson told the girls.

Positive Impacts

Early returns show the program is making positive impacts on the participants. “I think the kids realize they can do things they didn’t realize they could, said Angela Kalal, a fourth-grade teacher at the school. “If a kid can do something like run further or longer than her goal, there is no telling how applying that success to other aspects of her life can impact her in the future.” Girls ROC wraps up Saturday, April 26, with a 5K run in Mankato. Hanson stresses Girls ROC is no intended as any sort of feeder program for athletic program. It’s intent, she said, is to create a pattern of fitness and improved self-esteem that will last for years. “Girls ROC has helped the girls get excited for running and exercising in a group. It’s teaching them about work ethic

and teamwork,” said Marci Greisen, a fourth-grade classroom teacher at Oak Crest. “I think one of the best aspects is that it’s teaching something they can use the rest of their lives -- running is great for you no matter your age, speed, or ability in other athletics.”

A Bonus

One of the unintended benefits of Girls ROC is a sense of camaraderie at the school, Hanson said. Fifth- and sixthgraders who finish their outdoor runs are cheering on and encouraging the younger girls to do their best and keep pushing forward. She has seen benefits of the program during the school day, older girls interacting with their younger peers on the playground. “They are filled with such excitement. They cheer each other on and create such an energetic atmosphere. I am so proud of each one of them and look forward to running with them in Mankato,” said Sara Bungarden, a response to intervention (RTI) teacher at Oak Crest. Kalal said the signs Girls ROC achieves its goals will come over time. She believes it will create lasting memories. “Maybe one girl learns to persevere when the going gets tough, or maybe another girl learns to set small goals, maybe one other girl remembers that it’s her job to improve herself because no one else will ever do it for her,” she said. “Those little things will hopefully show up in the smallest ways down the road.” Hanson’s had several requests for a similar program for boys at Oak Crest. She’s considered a similar program in the future, possibly next year.

The Girls ROC program is intended to challenge participants physically and help them improve their confidence and self-esteem. Oak Crest Principal Liann Hanson expected 20 students would sign up for the program. The program’s first meeting saw 90 girls in attendance with eight more signing up the next day.

Letter to the Editor

Legislative Update from Kevin Dahle

(continued from page 5) The article went on to list a long litany of road construction projects that could get done if we enact this tax, including our very own pet project – the 169 overpass in Belle Plaine. This elicits a joyous gasp from everyone in town who would do almost anything to get this built. Unfortunately there is no guarantee that this will get built even with the new tax. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that even a dime would be spent on fixing our roads. If you were to read the entire article, one of the last sentences is “Funds could also be used for transit express service.� Ah, there it is! The foundation for the classic “Bait and Switch� that our politicians have become so used to enacting on our gullible populace. They tell their constituents about this massive horrible terrible problem that we need money for, we comply, they take the money and use it for something completely different. Then, 2 years later they tell us about the exact same massive horrible terrible problem that they still need just a little more money for, we comply, and they spend it on something completely different. Repeat ad infinitum. Exhibit A in this argument is the constitutional amendment passed in 2006 that instituted a motor vehicle sales tax allocation. The entire lead up to this vote was the pitiful condition of our roads and bridges, and if this amendment were passed we would not ever have to worry about funding for roads and bridges ever again because it was in the constitution so the money would always be there. The amendment stated that of this money “not more than 60% must be deposited in the highway user tax distribution fund, and not less than 40% must be deposited in a fund dedicated solely to public transit assistance as defined by law.� I repeat, not more than 60% spent for roads, and not less than 40% spent on trains and buses. So by my calculations, 0% spent on roads is not more than 60%.

And 100% spent on trains is not less than 40%. There is a reason the amendment was worded this way. It was to deceive voters into voting for something they NEVER would have voted for had they known what the politicians were actually intending to spend the money on. And still no one has yet to address how even $1 money spent on “transit� (trains and busses) would do anything to fix even a single pothole in a single road. They took money that was taxed on automobile purchases and spent it not on roads and bridges, but on trains! Where else did you think our portion of this ž of a billion dollars we are spending on the light rail projects came from? There are 4 options the county board is considering. One of them is joining the CTIB. This is pure lunacy that it is even being considered. This will levy a 1% sales tax for TRANSIT ONLY. Again, how is money spent on buses and trains going to fix or expand our roads? One of the options is for the county board to do nothing. Initially I thought this is the best option. Whenever elected officials do nothing, it is always a win for taxpayers! After careful consideration, I have changed my opinion. I want our commissioners to simply do their job. I want them to do their job of educating the people of Scott County WHY we have no money to fix our roads. The state has more than enough money to undertake every road project we could conceive. They just choose to spend it on other nonsense like trains. And then I want them to do their jobs and pressure the legislature to use the money they are already taking from us and use it for the purpose that We the taxpayers intended it be used for. Virtually no one in Scott County cares about “Transit�. Do your job, fix our roads, and forget about taking more of our money. Jeff Schmidt, Belle Plaine

Last Thursday evening was not the nicest night to be out with the snow and the sleet. That did not prevent us from having a full room of music lovers for the music of Peter Ostroushko and Dean Magraw. This was our last musical program for the spring. Among the Belle Plaine residents, we had a group of five from Carver, a couple from Shakopee and one person from Helena, Montana. They started off with an Irish reel on mandolin and guitar and moved onto a variety of other tunes. April 9, 1865 is a landmark day in the history of the United States. It marks the day that the Confederated States officially surrendered, bringing the United States Civil War to an end. Estimates of soldiers lost in the fighting run around a half million. The amount of the nations wealth spent or destroyed was tremendously costly. The Civil War still sparks a lot of interest. It was among the first wars that was captured by the “new technologies� of photography and telegraphy. News traveled relatively fast and photo documentation was used where possible and affordable. It is a long URL: http://www.washingtonpost. com/local/maryland-man-mayhave-found-two-forgotten-photos-of-lincolns-funeralprocessi on/2014/03/19/8f5f5fa6-ade611e3-96dc-d6ea14c099f9_story.html but if you are interested, just last month, photos believed to show Lincoln’s funeral procession on April 25, 1865. You can immerse yourself in novels of that era. The “Red Badge of Courage� and “Gone With the Wind� are two classics that come to mind. Non-fiction books covering all aspects of that era are plentiful. If you always felt that you should know more or simply would like to know more about the Civil War, we can find many different materials for you to read and study. To sample the offerings, I went to URL: http://www.scott.lib.mn.us/ and clicked on “Web Catalog/Account� and typed “Civil War� into the search box. Seventy nine different library materials came up in this simple search. More specific searches would have given me a different group of things to search through. In any case, if you are interested, we can help you learn more about our country’s history. Just stop in at your library. If you need help, please ask. We will be glad to assist you.

Belle Plaine Herald

With the broad topics of analyzing the budget surplus and comprehensive tax reform behind us, the Legislature is narrowing its focus on how to best appropriate the state’s budget surplus. It is important that we prioritize the allocation of these funds. One of our top priorities is always the health and well being of Minnesotans, and this year’s Health and Human Services (HHS) Omnibus Finance Bill has a number of provisions that will create a positive impact for our state. Perhaps the most notable inclusion in the bill is the 5 percent rate increase allotted to home and community-based service providers and intermediate care facilities for those with developmental disabilities. The wage increase is a step forward in allowing for those working at these important communitybased organizations to maintain stability and continue their high quality care for those with disabilities. This $80 million initiative will affect over 100,000 Minnesotans, including those with disabilities and their caregivers, and it will directly result in an increase in the quality of life for all affected. I have been supportive of this movement for years, and I believe it is important that our hardworking caregivers be recognized for their

services. I am glad to see this legislation is moving forward. In addition, t h e bill increases funding for Homeless Youth Act programs. Every night, more than 2,500 Minnesota children are sleeping on our streets. In an attempt to curb this growing epidemic, the increase in funding will allow programs to collaborate and coordinate efforts across the state to fight youth homelessness. No child should have to endure Minnesota’s winters without shelter. Similarly, more funds are being appropriated for the implementation of the Safe Harbor law, a statute that will bring more community safety, victim rehabilitation programs and other efforts and programs combating the problem of sexual trafficking or exploitation of Minnesota’s children. Sadly, Minnesota remains a national hub for human trafficking, an issue that doesn’t receive enough attention. This funding

is vital to the work we did last session, and I hope that we can continue to work on ending the sex trafficking of our youth. While I am glad these issues are being included in the HHS Omnibus Finance Bill, there are issues I wish had received funding. One of these issues was funding allotted to nursing homes. I had advocated for an increase in reimbursement notes for a nursing home in Le Sueur County. The funding would have allowed this particular facility to compete more effectively with others just across the county line. In talking with my colleagues, it was determined that this issue needs more statewide attention than just one bill in one county. I hope to continue discussion on this issue, and I hope that we can revisit this provision and come up with a solution that will help the entire state. The HHS Omnibus Finance Bill contains provisions that will improve the health and lives of many Minnesotans. The majority of these provisions have bipartisan support, and I am optimistic that the bill will eventually become law. I look forward to hearing from constituents and their stances on this bill and others, and encourage them to reach out to me with any questions or concerns they may have.

Legislative Update from Kelby Woodard Although MNsure is reporting it has met revised enrollment goals with 169,000 sign ups, the exchange has failed to reach several critical milestones by the March 31 deadline. More than half enrolled through the exchange signed up for Medical Assistance. A tax on private plans is how MNsure intends to fund the exchange going forward, and with only 47,000 private insurance sign ups, they are more than 80 percent below their original goal. Every Minnesotan must now be covered, and there will not be an open enrollment again until November of this year. Minnesota families of four will have to pay a $285 penalty for being unable to purchase insurance by the deadline, and starting in 2016 that penalty will increase to $695 per person. MNsure estimates that around 50,000 people will be fined by the IRS this year. This is quite troubling considering that thousands of Minnesotans were left in enrollment limbo by deadline, unable to get though a crashing website, long wait times and an ineffective bureaucracy. After launching last year with $160 million in taxpayer money, there is no excuse that the exchange was still facing technical problems on the last day of enrollment. While MNsure is offering an extension for the 36,000 who made a “good faith� effort to enroll on their site, too many Minnesotans remain in limbo. People should not be punished for MNsure’s incompetence. The federal government has also noticed the massive number of problems MNsure has experienced and is calling their director to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on April 3. The congressional panel has a number of questions about the problems MNsure has experienced, including an early data breach that left personal information of thousands susceptible to identity theft, low enrollment numbers, the abrupt departure of the first director and the functional and technical prob-

lems that continue to plague the website. MNsure has failed Minnesota and we deserve answers. The Democrats’ Garbage Bill The House is voting on a large bill chock full of wasteful spending. The bill (affectionately referred to as the Garbage Bill because so many provisions have been dumped into it) is nearly 500 pages long and includes $323 million in new spending. Combining the fiscal omnibus bills from several committees, Democrats are using surplus funds to dramatically increase state spending instead of returning that hard-earned money to taxpayers. While the bill does include some positives like adding $58 to the K-12 funding formula, increasing penalties for sex offenders and funding the

5% Campaign, the bad far outweighs the good. The second year of a session usually focuses on bonding, but instead this seems to be another budget year for Democrats to squander tax dollars on pet projects. The bill adds base funding for a number of agencies and will take more out of the general fund going forward, costing taxpayers even more in the years to come.

BELLE PLAINE HERALD, BELLE PLAINE, MINNESOTA

Thirty Years Ago This Week

he would use local labor whenever possible. Many relatives and friends helped Mrs. Louis Koepp celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. Excavation for the new basement at the Church of St. Thomas in Jessenland was well underway. It was to be used for all business and social affairs of the parish. George V. Nitz, native of Belle Plaine where he spent his boyhood, was honored by the Standard Oil Co. in recognition of his 30th anniversary with the company at Gaylord. Mrs. Alphonse Becker, nee Cathryn Huss, popular Union Hill matron, died at the age of 56.

90 Years Ago (1924)

Meet and Greet Belle Plaine Police Chief Joe Lenz greeted Coast to Coast store employee Kari Kruschke. Lenz, who began as police chief on March 1, 1984, spent much of his first month on the job getting to know the people of Belle Plaine. That Monday night was allocation night for the Belle Plaine Chamber of Commerce. A total of $9,900 in surplus Bar-B-Q Days profits was allocated. The largest recipient of funds was the softball association, which received $3,000 to help build a park shelter along the first-base line of the softball park. Two groups fighting hazardous waste disposal sites in the area would also get a big piece of the pie. MnPower, the Carver County group, would get $1,500, and MnCare, recently organized to fight a site in Scott County, would receive $1,000. German Day would be celebrated in Belle Plaine that coming Saturday, about one month after the Irish had their day in town. A number of special events were planned by some of the bar owners, including a sauerkraut eating contest and special German dishes to be served all day. Both Krant’s and D & R Sportsman’s Bar were advertising live music for Saturday. The Henderson School Board approved a contract to allow part of the old high school building to be used as a computer training and resource center. Budd and Dolores Hagen, who lived five miles south of Belle Plaine, would use the space to show people how computers can help the handicapped. About $1,000 in cash was taken from Wilson Oil Company shortly before it was to be taken to the bank. The money was in a bank money pouch in the station safe but the door was unlocked on the safe and it is believed a young man who was hanging around the station may have taken the money. Earth Day would be revived by the Belle Plaine City Council April 17. The main emphasis was having many residents walk along the ditches and pick up bottles, cans and general garbage. The program was a cooperative effort between the city council, school and the students. Pat Fogarty, city public works director, was coordinating the drive and would be laying out the areas of collection. Louis E. Lindemeier, 78, of Belle Plaine, died April 4 at the Belle Plaine Lutheran Home.

Mr. Lindemeier was born on April 30, 1905 in Hancock Township, Carver County, to J.H. and Marie (Heuer) Lindemeier. He operated the Belle Plaine concrete block plant for many years. Belle Plaine City Attorney Phil Kanning, a resident of Shakopee, was appointed by Gov. Perpech county judge for Scott and Carver counties. He was replacing Judge John Fahey of Chaska. The Girl Scouts Cookie scare was being handled here with the aid of detectors and guards. A truck loaded with cookies was expected to arrive in Belle Plaine that Wednesday and a guard was traveling with the cookies. The Cannon Valley Girl Scout Council was inspecting each box of cookies with a metal detector prior to delivery to each town. The organization pointed out that product tampering was a federal crime and the FBI was investigating cases in Minnesota and other states. The Belle Plaine High School baseball team dropped its season opener to Jordan 12-0. Dave Erickson, Jordan’s ace pitcher, threw a no-hitter and struck out 12. The Tigers committed seven errors in what was not a good start to the 1984 campaign. The Tiger softball team lost its season opener to Watertown 1915 but bounced back to defeat Waterville 21-7. In the victory, Nola Heitkamp cracked a home run, triple and a single. Melissa Malz, Judy Koepp and Debbie James each contributed three singles. Brenda Schultz pitched the win. The Tigers dropped their conference opener to Jordan 13-9 despite out-hitting the Jaguars 6-4.

60 Years Ago (1954)

The Eastern Star Chapter held a special meeting to celebrate its Golden Anniversary. The local chapter was organized in 1904. Brother Fred Tillquist acted as toastmaster, Mrs. Nellie Irwin gave a history of the chapter, Edwin Ploetz gave the dedication of the New Signet and a quartet consisting of Rob-

ert Sass, Robert Anderson, Fred Tillquist and Rev. B.J. Swede entertained the group. The Eastern Star elected the following officers for the ensuing year: Worthy Matron, Ada Gabbert; Worthy Patron, G.S. Gabbert; Associate Patron, Robert Smith; Secretary, Nellie Irwin; Treasurer, Fred Tillquist; Conductress, Sidonia Anderson; Associate Conductress, Sybil Olson; Chaplain, Selma Christenson; Marshal, Gusta Mahlman; Organist, Thelma Tillquist; Adah, Cora Hoelz; Ruth, Barbara Elder; Esther, Marian Sass; Martha, Electa, Helen Leise; Warder, Robert Anderson; Sentinel, Garman Elder. Mrs. Nell Irwin arrived home from a trip to California, where she had been sojourning since December. She spent much time with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. H. Barnard in the Los Angeles area. Plans for Belle Plaine’s Centennial were moving forward. Centennial President Tom Lynch was contracting with a Wisconsin firm for the window and street displays, which would give all display windows in town a uniform look. Robt. Anderson, chairman of the Centennial Queen contest, was proceeding with plans to make the nominations for Queen a popular contest rather than having individual businesses sponsor each Queen candidate. Fred Keup Sr., chairman of the pioneer parade, was gathering lists of available bands and other marching units so that the sponsors of such units may know what was available. Stan Orcutt reported he had 40 men signed up for the Best Beard of 1854 vintage contest. John Zaun, Helena Township, was taken suddenly ill and died on his way to the New Prague hospital. He was 68 years old. A fire set in a cornfield at the Joe Fogarty farm took off on a rampage, spreading two miles to the Jack O’Brien farm, where it destroyed two hog sheds and came dangerously close to the barn and other farm buildings. Death came most unexpectedly to Mrs. Roy Chard at her home in St. Lawrence Township. She was 60 years old. Construction of the new high school building was started. Bruce Olson, Mankato, in charge of construction, stated

Plans were underway to celebrate in the coming month the 50th anniversary of the present Church of Sacred Heart. The building was completed in 1874. Petitions were circulated in our rural routes protesting against the proposed raise of parcel post mailings from 5 cents a pound to 15 cents in local zones. At Zion Lutheran Church, Benton-Hancock, the following made up the confirmation class: Lawrence Telhorster, Walter Harms, Wilmar Ohland, Willard Kassen, Elsie Ortlip, Ella Greenhagen, Irene Hoffman, Edna Shenska, Paula Rehwald. Members of the Albert Schmitt family went to St. Paul to attend the funeral of Ben Rohweder. The Commercial Club described the Belle Plaine-Blakeley road as the worst in this area and named a committee to see the county engineer in regard to a new survey of the road. James McConnell, livestock buyer in this locality for many years, died at the home of his daughter in Hudson, Wis., at age 68. Born in the Keystone settlement, Blakeley Township, he spent all his adult years in the stock-buying business in this area. Veteran Bernard Stradcutter, 84, returned home from California after spending half a year there. Mrs. Henry Beckers, old-time resident of Belle Plaine, died at Rosenheim, Alberta, Canada, her death following by a few months the passing of her aged husband. Fred Keup Jr. bought the H.W. Bauer residence in Belle Plaine for $3,100 and he and his wife were to take occupancy that spring. The William Young farm of 58 acres in Jessenland was bought by Adolph Sander. The young people at East Union put on a home talent play, “The Old Oaken Bucket.� The seven-year legal battle in Nicollet County over the lowering of Swan Lake was thought to have ended with the decision of the state supreme court that lake waters cannot be lowered.

120 Years Ago (1894)

Those were the days of mud roads. It was impossible to get in or out of town without being mired. Thomas Keating, 21-year-old son of Matt Keating of Assumption, lost a hand while out hunting. He had rested his hand on the muzzle of the gun when it discharged. Relatives in large number from the Twin Cities and Wisconsin gathered here for the wedding of Gusta Luedtke and Matt Blau. The capture of 11 young wolves on the Erickson farm in St. Lawrence netted Gerhard Nachbar $55 in bounty.

Various letters, articles, and news stories have focused on broadband and how it isn’t available to many rural areas of Minnesota. Some have even used the word “broadband� in the same sentence as “rural electrification�. “If broadband isn’t available, rural America will die!� Is this reality or just scary fiction? I own a central Minnesota broadband company and have been a leading pioneer in my industry for over 15 years. I have several issues with these discussions. Most of Minnesota is NOT underserved. For example, in Sibley County they profess to not have viable broadband options. There are at least six different private sector businesses currently offering good broadband services to this area. ConnectMN.org can confirm this. My company will be number seven. Internet access (for most areas) does not need to be funded by the government. The government has no place in this discussion other than to encourage the private sector to invest in areas that need more choices. Yes, they can become a catalyst—but they do not need to be capital investors. The private sector can and should do the funding for broadband deployments. Broadband deployment is a perfect example of capitalism at its best. Small companies like mine can quickly provide broadband access with little or no government restriction. We can do this anywhere in the US and we have provided access to many underserved areas already with relative ease. Most people do not understand broadband. They do not understand that there are several ways to deliver fast Internet access to the user. For example, my company, using current wireless technology, can deliver over 100Mbps to our customers. Cable is capable of doing this as well. The media and proponents of government funded broadband feel that fiber is needed for everyone. While this is a noble thought, it is simply not economical nor practical to do this everywhere—and it is not needed. The proponents of fiber argue that it is needed to move us into the future. Terrestrial wireless is the “wave� of the future. It can deliver gigabit performance today, where it is needed, and it is only getting faster with each technology advance. It does not cost $20,000+ per mile to deploy like its fiber counterpart. Quite simply, we have access to non-fiber technology that can provide the “last mile “access to rural folks while allowing them to do everything they want on the Internet. Finally, some people are arguing that broadband (lack thereof) is stifling the economic growth of Smalltown, USA. This is simply not true. Smalltown is facing many other challenges and they are using broadband as an excuse. Let’s focus on the real root causes and not make excuses. Broadband, specifically wireless broadband in America, is an American Dream success story. We have been given the technology and the means to use it anywhere we want to pro-

vide competition. Competition drives prices down and quality up. Instead of looking for taxpayer handouts, we should embrace the Dream and encourage the government to become a catalyst and not a capital provider. I’m living the American Dream and I love it. No thanks, I don’t need any government money and my company will be providing good quality access to those who need it. In conclusion, please support the American Dream by encouraging your government representatives to become a broadband catalyst and to put their wallets away for now (or longer).

To the Editor, I took on the unsavory task of attending the Scott County board meeting dealing with the proposed ½ cent sales tax they are considering for “transportationâ€? funding. To my surprise, more than half of the 12 people who spoke were in favor of the tax. I have lived in Minnesota for 11 years now, and it never ceases to amaze me the ease at which Minnesotans are separated from their hardearned dollars by politicians looking for still more money for (insert horrible impending calamity here). Beware whenever a politician says “transportationâ€? or “transitâ€? in lieu of roads and bridges. This always signals doom for the dilapidated roads and bridges the money was originally taken for, and a boon for galactically expensive yet completely useless trains or buses that no one rides. It is amusing yet completely predictable that all we heard leading up to the meeting was the poor condition of our roads and inadequate funding for them. Our own commissioner, Mr. Joe Wagner, was quoted in the Belle Plaine Herald as saying “I’m sorry, but there isn’t enough money available through the levy and we haven’t been able to get it through the state. If we want projects done, we’ll have to come up with another way to get the money.â€? More evidence to support my opinion that politicians spend 100% of their time thinking of new and creative ways to take our money. Come to think of it, many of those who spoke in favor of the tax were some sort of elected official – mayor, city council, etc. I’m sure that was just a coincidence, though. Even so, NONE of those in favor of the tax even breathed a word about transit – it was all about roads. I don’t believe people even realize there is a difference between “transitâ€? (trains and buses) and road funding. This is a fact that no doubt makes politicians as giddy as a 5-year-old on Christmas morning.

Assistant Scott County Attorney Todd Zettler and County Attorney Pat Ciliberto were each selected by the Minnesota Lawyer as 2013 Attorneys of the Year. Zettler was also chosen by the Minnesota County Attorney’s Association to receive the Traffic Safety Award for 2013. Zettler was also nominated to receive MADD’s highest recognition, the Statewide Recognition Award for 2014. “While these awards name Todd and me individually, the awards are the result of years of hard work by the entire Scott County Attorney’s Office, both the lawyers in the office as well as the support staff,� Ciliberto said. In 2009, trial lawyers in the office began prosecuting Wesley Brooks for two felony DWIs occurring in Scott County. After obtaining convictions in Scott County District Court, Brooks appealed.

Zettler, whose primary assigned duty in the Scott County Att o r n e y ’s Office is appeal work, presented the case to the Minnesota Supreme Court, which affirmed in 2013 Brooks’ original convictions and set the law for Indy the entire State of Minnesota. The Minnesota Supreme Court specifically found that Brooks’ consent to testing in his DWI felony cases was not coerced, and was a valid exception to any warrant requirement. “The entire four year history of these Scott County cases is a prime example of great team-

preconstruction meeting for the traffic signal light project that will take place this spring in Belle Plaine will be held 10 a.m. this Thursday in Eden Prairie. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) recently scheduled April 21 as the start date for the construction of a four-way traffic light control system at the intersection of East Main Street/Highway 25 and Old Highway 169 Boulevard in Belle Plaine. The completion date is May 16.

The assistant Scott County attorneys and support staff originally assigned to the cases obtained criminal convictions in the District Court. And Todd did a great job all through the years of appeals. “The Scott County Attorney’s Office represents the people of our County.

Congratulations to our Speech Team and coaches for advancing seven individuals to the State Speech Meet this Saturday at Blaine High School. The Section competition was held at Belle Plaine this past Friday afternoon and Belle Plaine speechers liked the home field setting sending twelve participants to the final round of competition. Advancing to the State Meet (requires a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place finish) with 1st place finishes were: Max Hughes – Discussion, Jonah Meyer – Humorous Expression Interpretation, and Jake Hartmann – Serious Prose Interpretation. Second place finishers were Jennifer He – Serious Prose Interpretation and Alec Lorenz, Storytelling. Third place finishers were Nick Johnson – Humorous Expression Interpretation and Hannah Burmeister – Serious Prose Interpretation. Congratulations to all of you on this accomplishment and good luck to everyone in State Competition! With Earth Day 2014 approaching (it is celebrated on April 22 around the world), the Belle Plaine Schools is re-committing to efforts to improve recycling across all of our facilities. The Belle Plaine School District will be making every practical effort to Go Green and use environmentally sustainable practices whenever possible. Starting next week visitors will be seeing new collection containers around the buildings and in our lunchrooms. The district goal is to have all equipment in place and all staff, students and visitors participating with recycling efforts by April 22. Belle Plaine Schools will be utilizing a "single sort" recycling system so all recycling can be collected in the blue recycling bins in classrooms and community spaces.If additional containers should be needed as we continue to refine this program and increase participation by all who enter our facilities, we will be happy to add the containers as need requires.

Cologne OKs Street Work, Tells Enrollment Dip Causes Increase In Minnesota Minnesota UFC It May Raze Historic Building B.P. Schools’ 2013-14 Budget Deficit The Cologne City Council approved downtown street improvement work Monday evening. The council selected William Mueller & Sons of Hamburg for mill-and-overlay work to 677 feet of Jacob Avenue, 704 feet of John Avenue and 396 feet of Market Street. The company will mill off three inches of old bituminous roadway and replace it with new, compacted bituminous material. Cologne will pay $73,312 for the work. It’s work the city planned and included in the 2014 budget. It should be completed before Glad Days in lateJuly, he said.

Preservation Too Costly

Minnesota

Cologne’s new city logo. ing an investment in the downtown mill site and the council can’t rightfully force it to spare the building it owns since the building is not on the National Register of Historic Places. It is a slab-on-grade building dating back to 1898. “You’ve got to go with it,” he said. “We don’t own it.” Previously, Marcia Tellers, a former longtime member of the Cologne Planning Commission and local historian said there would be opposition to razing the building from longtime residents. The building has served a variety of uses over the years, including a mortuary, a furniture store, a hardware store and a hatchery. In February, Lein told Jeff Nielsen, UFCs general manager and CEO, the council would catch significant flack if the building were demolished and that the council had made it clear it wanted the building preserved. The cost of its relocation has ended that plan. The city can’t justify the additional expense and doesn’t want to impede the coop’s plans to improve the site, Lein said. UFC is planning a $3 million investment. Its plans include bringing new jobs to Cologne. “UFC will bring something into town,” Williams said. “You’ve got to start going with it.” If UFC razes the building, Lein wants bricks preserved and somehow incorporated into the area.

Deeming the cost of relocating the historic antique store building adjacent to the Cologne Mill to be too expensive, the council is telling United Farmers Cooperative it can proceed with its plans to remove the building from the site. UFC initially said it wanted to remove the building as part of its expansion plans for the mill site. The council balked at the plan, noting the historic significance of the building in downtown Cologne. It wanted the building preserved and relocated. “Our little adventure wanting to move it kind of fell in our face,” Mayor Matt Lein said. A preliminary check of moving the building indicated the cost would be at least $40,000 and as much as $100,000 – money the city did not include in its 2014 budget. The city also has no place where the building could be easily moved. Councilor Scott Williams said there are four or five vacant Cologne’s Best Offer buildings in the downtown area The city council recently ofthat “to put it mildly” need to be fered Carver County $5,000 for improved. He said UFC is mak-

the house and lot at 105 Paul Avenue N. Hendel informed the council the county declined Minnesota the offer. He said the county, which controls the property, wants a higher offer. The small house on a 4,356 square-foot lot has an estimated market value of $32,000. The city is interested in the lot for possible redevelopment. The house has been for sale for about five years and is currently vacant. A rough estimate indicated the city would have to pay an additional $10,000 to $12,000 to raze the 871 squarefoot house built in 1880. “For that cost, I’m thinking no,” Williams said. “Yes, it would have been nice to start cleaning up main street.” Hendel said he’d inform the county the council’s $5,000 offer is firm.

In other action at the April 7 meeting, the Cologne City Council: • Paid bills totaling $71,037.89. • Approved an official city logo. Initially, it will be used for letterhead, envelopes and possibly staff polo shirts. • Approved the purchase of a 2014 Exmark 72 inch diesel mower with striper and dethatcher for $12,125.40. The sale to UFC Waconia Farm Supply includes trade-in of a 2002 Exmark diesel mower with 2,000 hours of mowing time. • Awarded a bid for repairs to the public works building to Vos Construction of Green Isle for $6,939. • Approved a plan to utilize the soccer fields southwest of city hall. They will be used by the Central School District’s (Norwood Young America) Community Education program during the spring and fall.

‘Noteables’ Host Concert April 27 “The Noteables,” a group of area singers with members from Belle Plaine, are preparing for an upcoming concert Sunday, April 27 in Le Sueur. The group will perform at 4 p.m. at Le Sueur Middle School/High School (901 Ferry Street in Le Sueur). The concert -- “Makin’ Magic with Medleys” -- features songs from Broadway like “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” (from Oklahoma), “Candle on the Water” (from Pete’s Dragon), and lively toe-tappers like “Mr. Bass Man” and “I Hear a Voice a-Prayin.’ ” The songs are intended to enchant spirits. Admission is free but donations are appreciated. Refresh-

ments will be served after the concert. “Makin’ Magic with Medleys” also mixes in great nostalgia tunes like “Loch Lomond” and “Blue Skies.” The centerpieces of the show are the great medley numbers like “Irving Berlin’s America” and “Rogers and Hammerstein on Broadway.” One medley even spoofs medleys --“...Give me a choral medley, where songs barely last one phrase...” The Noteables promise to bestow musical delights upon their audience with their magical medleys. The Noteables are the area’s community singing group. Formed in 2006, they have

grown from 15 members to over 60 and include members from Le Sueur, Henderson, Le Center, Belle Plaine, Jordan, Edina, St. Peter, and Mankato. The group’s newest members include Pete Favolise and Phil Lee of Le Sueur; Ginny Morgan of Jordan; Barb Warner of Belle Plaine, and Dean Wolf of Mankato. “I really enjoy singing again -- and with such a large group,” Warner said. “The music is fun and we know it will bring great memories to our audience.” Gordon Gregersen, former LS H vocal music teacher, directs the group. Avis McDaniel of St. Peter is the group’s accompanist.

E-Cigarette Poisoning Increasing Nicotine Vials Potentially Fatal to Children

The Minnesota Poison Control System (poison center) saw more than 10 times as many reports of children and teenagers being poisoned by e-cigarette “juice” last year compared to 2012. E-cigarette juice is the term for the liquid used in tobacco vaporizers. These vials of liquid can contain fatal levels of nicotine for children, who may mistake them for candy or something to eat. In 2013, 50 children suffered poisoning via e-cigarette “juice.” Previously, e-cigarette poisonings were virtually unheard of in Minnesota, the health department said in a press release. But in 2013, they accounted for 23 percent of the state’s 218 teen and child tobacco-related poisonings. Poisonings include calls where ecigarette have been swallowed, inhaled, come in contact with the eyes, or absorbed through the skin. In 2012, the poison center received only five reports of ecigarette related poisonings for

people less than 20 years old. “Fortunately, none of the poisonings hospitalized or seriously injured children in 2013. But given the rise in poisonings, we really want parents to know that this liquid nicotine can pose a fatal risk and that they should store it out of the reach of children,” said Dr. Ed Ehlinger, commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Health. In Belle Plaine, police have also seen an increase in the use of e-cigarettes. This year, police have written three citations for juveniles in possession of e-cigarettes. Belle Plaine police did not write an e-cigarette citation in 2013 or 2012. The school district prohibits possession of e-cigarettes on school grounds. Currently, there is no state or federal law requiring manufacturers of so-called e-juice to disclose ingredients or require child-resistant packaging. Many e-juice flavors, such as cotton candy, bubble gum and grape, have an appeal for children.

Just a few weeks after Green Isle city councilors amended the city’s zoning code and approved a fee schedule to support the applications for zoning and building permits the city receives, along came a request nobody thought about. Last week (Tuesday, March 25), the city addressed the oversight and reduced the fee accordingly. It all started when Jan Mathews applied for a permit to move in an existing shed from her son Sheldon’s farm into the city. The shed was moved to the Mathews’ property on Fourth Street. Typically, Green Isle’s contract building official, MNSPECT of Waconia, doesn’t inspect the construction of a shed bigger than 120 square feet (10 feet by 12). All a person has to do is pay the $40 fee and they’re good to go. However, Mathews’ shed is 194 square feet. City code requires an inspection of a building larger than 120 square feet construction before it was moved into Green Isle. Green Isle City Clerk Bert Panning reported the shed was moved into the city without an inspection. More importantly to Mathews, the fee was $417 – the same fee a person who wanted to move a full-sized house into the city. To Mathews, Panning and the city

town without the appropriate inspection.

Ambulance Service

The council also approved its annual agreement with the City of Arlington for ambulance service. Green Isle will pay Arlington $6013.11 for the service in 2014. The fee increases to $6247.57 – an increase of 3.9 percent – for 2015. The city can pay the fee for 2014 in one installment or in two payments due July 1 and Dec. 1. The agreement allows the ambulance supervisor to determine the level of care a sick or injured person will receive based on the experience, training and equipment available to the ambulance crew. The agreement also holds Arlington harmless if the ambulance can’t respond because of inclement weather or because the crew is unavailable for any reason. In other action at the March 25 meeting, the Green Isle City Council: • Paid bills totaling $4,871.67. • Heard a report on the ongoing report of frozen water pipes at houses and businesses in the city. • Agreed to include discussion and consideration of participation in the Renville-Sibley fiber optic project on the upcoming meeting’s agenda.

AIS Checks at Carver County Boat Landings to Continue

Efforts to keep aquatic invasive species out of lakes in Carver County will continue this summer, thanks to a county board vote to provide funding for inspections. The county board recently approved a plan to spend $119,500 for inspections at nine lakes in the county, including Lake Minnewashta in Chanhassen, Lake Bavaria in Chaska and Lake

City Cleanup Day April 26 Belle Plaine’s annual Recycle and Cleanup Day will take place Saturday, April 26 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Belle Plaine Police Department parking lot, 420 East Main Street. The event, sponsored by the city of Belle Plaine and Belle Plaine Lions Club, gives residents of the city of Belle Plaine and the townships of Belle Plaine, Blakeley and St. Lawrence an opportunity to rid their homes of unwanted clutter during these spring cleaning days. Recyclable items that will be accepted free of charge include glass, newspapers, scrap metal, aluminum, cardboard, plastic and bicycle frames (no tires). There is also a long list of fee items.

council, that didn’t see quite right. The council reduced the fee to $252.50. Mathews wanted to know why an inspection was required of a shed 72 square feet larger than one that didn’t require an inspection. Scott Qualle of MNSPECT, said he has to follow the rules as they are written. He said the intent of the rule is to make sure a larger building is assembled correctly and the connections to the foundation and utilities are proper and safe. Mathews scoffed at the idea of paying the same fee for the inspection of a 192 square foot shed would be the same as if she moved a large house into the city. “I couldn’t agree with Jan more,” Panning told the council, noting that each day he learns something new about his job as city clerk-treasurer. “It just seems extremely high.” The regulation and fee for moving a house into the Green Isle was set in 2004. Since then, only one building has been moved into the town. The city thought the state set the fee and requirement until research indicated the city controlled the seldom-used rule. Mayor Dale ZumBerge said the city’s fees should be fair and consistent. He said the city doesn’t want people to move buildings requiring permits into

Waconia. The inspections for aquatic invasive species – primarily zebra mussels and Eurasian water milfoil -- will begin with the fishing opener May 10 and run through Sept. 4. The county’s share of funding the program is $50,000, the Chaska Herald recently reported. The Minnewashta Creek Watershed District is contributing $54,000 and the Lake

Bavaria Homeowners’ Association is chipping in $7,000. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is adding the remaining $8,000 in the form of grants for inspection support. Zebra mussels have been found in Prior Lake and Lake Minnetonka and area lake enthusiasts aim to prevent their spread into lakes in Carver County.

poisoning may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, and/or difficulty breathing. A fatal dose of nicotine for an adult is between 50 to 60 milligrams (mg), and a fatal dose for children is expected to be less. E-juice containers may include varying amounts of nicotine, from 18 mg up to 24 mg. E-cigarettes, also known as electronic nicotine delivery systems, are battery-operated devices that allow users to inhale vaporized liquids. “We think of concentrated nicotine as a very serious poison, equivalent to dangerous prescription drugs,” said Stacey Bangh, clinical supervisor at the Hennepin Regional Poison Center. “Given this rate of increase, it’s not a matter of if a child will be harmed by these products, but when.” Several calls received in 2013 by the poison center involved toddlers and infants less than 2 years old who had swallowed e-juice, while some involved teenagers who had been using e-cigarettes.

DNR Adds 2 Miles of Trout Fishing Along Area River Metro area anglers who want to stick close to home for the April 12 stream trout opener will have nearly two additional miles of shoreline to explore as a result of acquisitions made by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in Dakota County. Half a mile north of Dakota County Road 66 along County 79, the DNR has acquired a 52acre aquatic management area that straddles the main branch of the Vermillion River, protecting 4,100 feet of shoreline. Upland areas of the property include five acres of grasslands and 25 acres of woods.

Further east, a 62-acre acquisition now affords access to the south branch of the Vermillion River just south of County Road 66 and west of state Highway 52. That parcel includes 6,900 feet of shoreline, 25 acres of grassland and 20 acres of woodland. The south branch is a coldwater tributary to the Vermillion that provides rearing areas and offers refuge for trout, especially during hot summer weather. Both properties provide habitat for pheasants, turkeys, ducks, doves, deer and other wildlife. They also will be open to hunting, trapping and wildlife
